it too much, they do have the sense if they were an american band from canada, they might be in the rock 'n' roll hall of fame already. to rush fan, we say keep up the lobbying effort. by the way, we talked about 20 minutes. later on today, we're going to post the entire interview on the blog, cnn.com a. daut kaucnn.co. >> what do we show the video of you rocking with them on the stage, right now? >> that unique pleasure will be in 90 minutes' time. we're drawings the half hour. extreme weather to tell us about this morning. torrential rain, flash flood watching along the east coast this morning. the carolinas already with 15 inches of rain this week. could set a record. storms could dump 6 to 10 inches of new rain from new england. >> sad news from the entertainment world, tony curtis has died. the father of actress jamie lee curtis, best known for his role in "some like it hot" opposite marilyn monroe and jack lemon. there's no word on how the actor died. he was 85 years old. >>> and faisal shahzad planned to come back and detonate a second bomb had the first attempt been successful. a
favorite wines and 35% less for gasoline that i do in quebec, canada, i'm stunned by some who want to move to another country. if you do want to move, don't come to canada. my salary of $70,000 a year turns into just over $34,000 after income tax and that still doesn't take into account $4 a gallon gas and a general federal provincial sales tax of 13%. bimal writes, jack, the problem is that taxes are not 39.6%. they are now going up to over 60%. you are forgetting social security, medicare, medicare on capital gains, state taxes, property taxes. i'm of the opinion that after 60% a person making $250,000 a year should consider leaving america. why not look at life and growing economies like india, china, or other places? frank writes, know any countries without fox? if you want to read more on this go to my blog cnn.com/caffertyfile and you'll find a lot of e-mails and things there. do you know any countries without fox? >> i don't know. i'm sure there are some, jack. i'll see you tomorrow. i appreciate it. bye-bye. it's not an issue that usually comes up in campaigns, but one race is now
running for office. it is unheard of in great britain or canada for any party to ever think about changing the law to keep its competition off the bell. and the britain anyone can get on about -- to keep them off the ballot in this country. in canada but it only takes 100 signatures. it does not occur to people in most countries that is legitimate for two parties to get together and keep competition off the ballot. host: for those who tried to keep the parties off the ballots, what is the main reasoning? guest: it depends on whether they are talking honestly or not. if you want an example of an honest comment, i was at a georgia state legislative hearing once and a legislator on the elections committee said, i don't want no damn libertarian running against me. i appreciated that. when the law came before judges, the judges will not say something like that. they constantly tell us we are in danger of overcrowded ballots that will cause the utter confusion. the truth is, we suffer from under-crowded ballots. i have been tracking state legislative candidacies for 20 years. every election year
europe were diverted to canada. once an airliner starts out over the pond with a point of no return, there had to be some complications. was there anything that turned out to be a problem? i know it was not simple. was theemedy to divert as many of those to canada as you could? did you turnome back? were there any glitches in that or someone got close to running out of fuel on the way across the land? >> those routes across the land in in the ocean are structured. they are required to have a certain amount of fuel in the event of emergency. they would have either gone back to europe or we have greenland, iceld, and the canadian provinces all the way down. i was not concerned about an aircraft getting to a place to land at all. i knew that our procedures in setting of the north atlantic tracks in this case provide for that contingency. >> the town of gander in newfouland, there is an interesting story on that. they hav5000 people. 10,000 people landed that day on 9/11.

baggage on the death penalty issue. i grew up in canada where the last time someone was executed for murder was 1962. dpnlt really deters crime. well, all of those sentiments from the canadian public coalesced into the complete elimination of capital punishment in 1976. but there are other reasons to eliminate capital punishment in the united states. the death row in the united states, very costly. they don't believe the death penalty deters murder and they're rated as one of the most inefficient uses of taxpayer money to fight crime. a report that was put out by the richard deeters group says maintaining people on death row and supporting propositions that likely will never be carried out is becoming increasingly expensive and harder to justify. looking back at theresa lewis's case she was convict and sentenced in 2002 for her crime and the significant cause of legal appeals. many appeals take much longer. his report says the money spent to preserve the system estimated to be $10 million per year makes the society safer. that's more food for thought. that's it for me. time now f

to cape cod and the islands and perhaps maybe a direct landfall over atlantic canada, you guys, but i keep stressing a wonel to the left could mean the difference between a bad storm and a very dangerous storm. that could still make landfall somewhere along the east coast. water, still very warm, up until you get towards the east coast, and the water temperatures drop off and that's going to help weaken the storm, along with the trough that should kick the storm out to sea. but the timing of this trough is going to be essential, and there is some of the you have advisories that are out, which i just mentioned to you. so now, the latest right now from the national hurricane center, hurricane warnings in effect for parts of the mid atlantic region and, of course, watches extending all the way up now towards delaware. so this storm is getting stronger by the minute, and, of course, we are watching the track very carefully. i'll have all that updated information. i apologize, it really just came in before i came to air. so everything is fluid, jenna! jen no need to apologize. we know you're wo

canada is trying to do. if you raise the bar on expectations, the school system will organize itself to jump over that higher bar. several years ago, this is what happened with "race to the top," they asked all the states to put high standards in place across the board. several years ago, michigan did that because that was what we were focused on, doubling the number of college graduates in michigan. we raised the bar at every single grade level. 2007 was the year the high school starts took effect. since 2005, when we started raising the bar k through 12 -- k through 8, we have seen math and reading scores increase every single grade. dropout rate has gone from 15% to 11%, just in two years we have every high schooler taking a college prep curriculum no matter where they live, in detroit, west bloomfield, all taking the same college prep curriculum. as a result of that, we have seen test scores increase, act scores up, 70% taking advanced placement classes. college enrollment is up. community college enrollment has increased by 35%. >> the way you grade this is, i'm hearing a lot of
